Byron Grant, Jr. Obituary

Grant ~ Byron Keith Grant, Jr. transitioned from labor to reward January 14, 2023, at the age of thirty-eight.  He was born July 30, 1984, to Byron Grant, Sr. and Cynthia LaRosa Grant in Jacksonville, Florida.  Byron was the apple of his parent’s eye.  Being the only child, Byron was very close to his parents and shared many wonderful experiences together.

A native of Jacksonville, Byron and his mother moved to the Florida Keys where he graduated from Marathon High School; he participated in football and in the high school orchestra.  Byron furthered his education by attending Florida International University (FIU) where he studied music. 

Two of his greatest joys came when Byron III and Aiylah were born.  They were the love of his life, and he was the love of their life.  Because of his love for children, he volunteered with the underprivileged children in the Florida Keys.  Byron was employed with Peraton Government for Homeland Security as a GMW at the time of his untimely demise.
